  • Remember when he found you

    A number of years ago I wrote a story about a man who was as lost as a soul could be.

    When I met him, he was a pastor, although he didn’t look like a typical pastor, if there is such a thing.

    I remember his shaved head and “ROUGH” tattooed across the back of his neck. I also remember thinking he was one scary looking dude.

    His wasn’t a sanitized, heartwarming story, although it started out that way.
